n this month’s View from the classroom, we catch up with Victoria Matthews, Assistant Headteacher Learning & Teaching at St Andrew’s C of E School in Croydon, to hear about the school’s drama and music enrichment programme, and how it is helping bind school and community together while offering the students lessons in resilience, confidence and presentation skills.


Tell us about your school


St Andrew's C of E School is a coeducational Anglican voluntary aided school in Croydon with just under 600 students enrolled. Having been founded by the church in 1857, the school is part of the educational provision of the Diocese of Southwark. We’ve been on a journey of improvement since our new headteacher, Kerry Targett, joined the school in 2015, and we are


passionate about building strength, trust and resilience to enable every student that is part of the St Andrew’s family to have greater chances of success and fulfilment.


“We (the trustees) are pleased St Andrews were carrying the baton for music education, we liked their ideas and wanted to support them”


- HR Taylor Trust


How has the drama and music enrichment programme developed?


We started this programme a year ago and it has gone from being under attended to us finding it difficult to get the children out at the end of the day! We’ve formed some great relationships along the way; we put in a bid for a grant from HR Taylor Trust for music provision so that we could buy new instruments and technical equipment and their response was amazing. They said they loved our vision for the school and really wanted to be part of it, and it really has been their support, and that of the British Theatre Academy, that have made such a difference for this programme.
